The 5 Basic Stages of Selling

By Wayan Vota on October 22, 2009
  1. Attention: Get the attention of your prospect through advertising or promotions.  Remember the marketing section earlier?
  2. Interest: Build interest through an emotional appeal such as how good they will look.
  3. Desire: Build desire by starting with the OBJECTIVE and designing for the total project.  Desire is built when the end-user feels included and vested in the project.
  4. Conviction: Increase the desire for your product by proving the worth of your product (compare to competitors, use testimonials from happy customers, show holistic long-term solution).
  5. Action: Encourage the prospect to act. Ask for the sale; if they object, overcome the objections and ask for the sale again.
